Associate Professor (Research) of Medicine (Biomedical Informatics), of Biomedical Data Science and of Surgery
Dr Hernandez-Boussard is an Associate Professor in Medicine (Biomedical Informatics), Biomedical Data Science, and Surgery at the Stanford University School of Medicine. Dr. Hernandez-Boussard's background and expertise is in the field of computational biology, with concentration on accountability measures, population health, and health policy. A key focus of her research is the application of novel methods and tools to large clinical datasets for hypothesis generation, comparative effectiveness research, and the evaluation of quality healthcare delivery.
Professor of Biochemistry and, by courtesy, of Chemical Engineering and of Chemistry
The overarching goal of the Herschlag Lab is to understand the fundamental behavior of RNA and proteins and, in turn, how these behaviors determine and impact biology more broadly. We are particularly interested in questions of how enzymes work, how RNA folds, how proteins recognize RNA, and the roles of RNA/protein interactions in regulation and control, and the evolution of molecules and molecular interactions. The lab takes an interdisciplinary approach, spanning and integrating physics, chemistry and biology, and employing a wide range of techniques.
Professor of Health Research and Policy (Health Services Research) and of Medicine (Cardiovascular Medicine)
Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology)
Dr. Andrew Hoffman is a board certified endocrinologist who specializes in the treatment pituitary and other neuroendocrine diseases, including acromegaly, Cushing syndrome, prolactinomas and other pituitary tumors.
Professor of Radiology (General Radiology) at the Stanford University Medical Center
Professor of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at the Stanford University Medical Center
Dr. Holsinger is Professor and Chief of Head and Neck Surgery at Stanford University. His research focuses on surgical innovation and clinical trials through NCI-funded cooperative groups. He serves as surgical principal investigator for RTOG920 and coordinated surgeon-credentialing for ECOG 3311, a prospective clinical trial to study robotic head and neck surgery. He leads an investigative device exemption trial to evaluate the safety and efficacy of anext-generation flexible robotic surgical system. In 2014, he began a prospective clinical trial to evaluate multispectral imaging of patients with oropharyngeal cancer, in an effort to discern tumor from tumor. Currently, he leads a study to evaluate hyper-spectral imaging to improve surgical vision. From 2003-2013, Dr. Holsinger worked at the Department of Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center where he founded and led the Program in Minimally Invasive and Endoscopic Head and Neck Surgery and co-directed the program in Minimally Invasive Technology in Oncologic Surgery. Dr. Holsinger’s surgical practice focuses on the surgical management of benign and malignant diseases of the thyroid, as well as head and neck cancer. His areas of research interest include endoscopic head and neck surgery, including transoral robotic surgery and transoral laser microsurgery, as well as time-honoured approaches of conservation laryngeal surgery and supracricoid partial laryngectomy. At the Cancer Center, Dr. Holsinger has led an effort to improve the quality of multidisciplinary tumor boards in H&N, but also across the Cancer Center, beginning with the founding of the H&N Multidisciplinary Cancer Care Clinical Program in 2014. Dr. Holsinger received his medical degree from Vanderbilt School of Medicine, completed his internship and residency at Baylor College of Medicine and his Fellowship in head and neck surgical oncology at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center. In 2003, he was awarded Fulbright Scholarship to study surgery at the University of Paris with Professor Ollivier Laccourreye and with Professor Wolfgang Steiner at the Georg-August University in Göttingen. Dr. Holsinger has authored or co-authored numerous articles and abstracts, which have appeared in publications such as the New England Journal of Medicine, Journal of the American College of Surgeons, the Journal of Clinical Oncology, Clinical Cancer Research, Head & Neck, Laryngoscope, and the Archives of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery. Board-certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology, Dr. Holsinger is a member of numerous societies including the American College of Surgeons, the American Society of Clinical Oncology, and the American Head and Neck Society.
